Dawn Of Aces is based on the WarBirds engine but has a completely different flavor. The flight arenas carry a more historic feel. The terrain is based on France with a front and aerodromes on both sides. Unlike WarBirds, which has four non-distinct countries (purple, red, green and gold countries), Dawn Of Aces has three teams. A pilot flies any aircraft in the DoA planeset and helps his country capture other aerodromes and advance the front lines.
